Toro CT2120/CT2140

Filling the void for a compact "light-duty" triple left by the now obsolete John Deere 900, Hayter has launched two new triples.

Aimed at mobile crews cutting grass at schools grounds and municipal areas as well as those maintaining caravan parks, private estates and cemeteries, the machines have transport widths of 1.3m to make them easy to move in vans or on trailers. Cutting width is 2.1m and weight is 1,200kg.

They have independent cutter head lift plus a "limited lift in reverse" function. This means the heads are automatically raised to the "cross cut" position when reverse is engaged. They continue at full rpm so mowing continues without delay when they are lowered and cut quality is maintained. Productivity is recorded at 2.32ha/h. Top speed for mowing and transport is 22kmph.

The two-wheel drive CT2120 and four-wheel drive CT2140 are both powered by three-cylinder, water-cooled, 26hp Kubota diesel engines. Both have closed-loop hydrostatic transmission systems. The cutting units employed are the existing Mk3 200x762mm cutter units in four-, six- or eight-bladed configurations.

LEDs minimise bulb failure and downtime and an optional ROPS assist kit allows the operator to raise or lower the frame as necessary. Other features include an overheat protection system and electronic control module with on-board diagnostics.

The CT2120 is £26,500 ex VAT and the CT2140 is £28,500 ex VAT. They are the first ride-on Toro grounds products to be designed and produced exclusively at the Hayter factor in Spellbrook since Toro acquired Hayter back in 2005.

The development of the new machines signals the start of a transition to the Toro brand on all Hayter commercial products.
